The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-August 29, 2020

By David G. Firestone

Quinn Houff #00 Eagle Rock Wealth Management Chevy Camaro-It’s a smooth look with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Austin Dillon #3 American Ethanol Throwback Chevy Camaro-This is a great throwback, and I love the design! A

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Throwback Ford Mustang-I like this design. Busch has some great cans in the 90’s, and this is a perfect example. A

Ryan Newman #6 Oscar Meyer Ford Mustang-I like the overall design, but they took a few creative liberties with the car, and the new designs are not only pointless, but distract from the overall scheme. Still, this is good, and I’ll give it a B+

Josh Bilicki #7 Insurance King Throwback Chevy Camaro-This is a very faithful throwback, and I think this looks great! A

Chase Elliott #9 Mountain Dew/Team Rubicon Chevy Camaro-Camo does NOT look good on a race car in general, but this color scheme really doesn’t do it any favors. F

Chase Elliott #9 NAPA Throwback Chevy Camaro-I hated this scheme the first time around, but I understand why it was used. Still, it is a faithful throwback, so I’ll give this a C

Matt DiBenedetto #21 Menard’s/Monster Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A grade.

William Byron #24 Liberty University Chevy Camaro-This is faithful replica of an awesome scheme. I like this, and it gets an A.

Corey LaJoie #32 Drydene Ford Mustang-Adding the black is pointless, and the new design is over done. Now it isn’t horrible, and the color scheme is decent, so I’ll give it a C.

Michael McDowell #34 Digital Ally Shield Cleansers Ford Mustang-It’s a bold look, and it isn’t over designed, so I give it an A.

John Hunter Nemechek #38 ACME Markets Ford Mustang-I like the color scheme, and I hate the design scheme. As such, this gets a C.

Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 Columbia Sportswear Chevy Camaro-This is an amazing scheme, and I like the design and color schemes. This earns an A.

Joey Gase #51 Race for Relief Ford Mustang-New scheme for 2020, white. A

It’s a smooth look with a great color scheme, and that will always earn an A.

Alex Bowman #88 Acronis Chevy Camaro-The stripes work well, it’s bold, and not over designed. I give this an A.

Alex Bowman #88 Truck Hero/Chevy Group Chevy Camaro-I hated this scheme the first time around, but I understand why it was used. Still, it is a faithful throwback, so I’ll give this a C

Daniel Suarez #96 ARRIS Throwback Toyota Camry-I liked this scheme then, and I like it now. A

The Driver Suit Blog-The Face-Shield Project Part 4-Other Face-Shields

By David G. Firestone

While helmets have been around since the beginning of auto racing, full face helmets are a relatively new phenomena, having only come around since the late 1960’s. With the advent of full-face helmets came the visor. Visors or face-shields, are clear pieces of plexiglass that cover the open area of the helmet. In addition to keeping wind and rain out of a driver’s eyes in open cockpits, they also shield the driver’s face from fire, and can be tinted for racing in sunlight. Each form of auto racing has their own quirks when it comes to face-shields. Face-shields are designed to snap closed, and they all feature holes for the connection to the helmet, holes to keep the visor closed, and handles to help open the visor. This week we will look at other kinds of face shields.

This particular face-shield isn’t just a driver face-shield, it’s also a passenger face shield. This is an Arai face shield off my Andretti Racing Experience helmet. This was used by both professional and amateur drivers, as well as passengers. The helmet is designed that the face-shield can be replaced by unscrewing with a quarter. This last visor is from racing artist and driver Dave Labs. While I can confirm this Bieffe made visor off his helmet is genuine, I’m not fully sure where this was raced. Labs has raced in both stock cars and drag racing. This looks more like drag racing helmet, but I don’t know for sure. That’s it for face-shields. Next week, I go off topic for a bit.

Kevin Harvick #4 Busch Beer/National Forest Foundation Ford Mustang-I like the new motif for 2020. The forest design looks good, and the car has a solid look. A

Tyler Reddick #8 Cat App Chevy Camaro-Black is a good color for a race car, and I like the addition of dots and yellow. This earns an A.

Tyler Reddick #8 Cat Power Throwback Chevy Camaro-While I didn’t like this car back in 1994, it has grown on me since then. I think this is a great throwback, and it gets an A.

Kyle Busch #18 Snickers Toyota Camry-I really like this scheme. It’s bold, the shade of brown works well, and the car looks great. A

Darrell Wallace Jr. #43 DoorDash Chevy Camaro-This is a solid, smooth, and simple look that always earns an A.

The Driver Suit Blog-The Face-Shield Project Part 3-IndyCar Face-Shields

By David G. Firestone

While helmets have been around since the beginning of auto racing, full face helmets are a relatively new phenomena, having only come around since the late 1960’s. With the advent of full-face helmets came the visor. Visors or face-shields, are clear pieces of plexiglass that cover the open area of the helmet. In addition to keeping wind and rain out of a driver’s eyes in open cockpits, they also shield the driver’s face from fire, and can be tinted for racing in sunlight. Each form of auto racing has their own quirks when it comes to face-shields. Face-shields are designed to snap closed, and they all feature holes for the connection to the helmet, holes to keep the visor closed, and handles to help open the visor. This week we will look at IndyCar face shields.

IndyCar, like many other classes of auto racing is open cockpit. While there are windshields that protect the driver from harm, the face-shield is still a critical part of the helmet. These face-shields were the only thing keeping a driver from injury from debris. They tend to show a lot of use. This Johnny Unser face-shield was used during the 1996 Indy 500. It has a lot of wear and Johnny has autographed it with “INDY-1996” inscribed. It should be noted that he started 16th, and finished 33rd due to a transmission issue. This Jaques Lazier Menards face-shield was used in the 2003 Indy 500, where he started 20th, and finished 29th, due to a wreck with the 99 of Richie Hearn on lap 62. It features a tear away, commonly used among open cockpit race car face-shields. Next week, the face-shield discussion continues with other kinds of face shields.
